To celebrate the fifth year of our Awards, for 2021 there will be a special Editor’s Award. We’re keeping this one close to our chest. Details and the winner will be announced at the awards ceremony later this year.
The winners of the Provider Awards in each category will be the companies that achieve the highest number of nominations/best rating from paraplanners. In the event of a tie, the comments accompanying the nominations made by paraplanners will be used to identify the winner.
The winners of the Paraplanner Awards will be determined by a panel of judges drawn from the industry.
For all the awards, Professional Paraplanner’s Editor is the head judge, whose decision will be final.
